Candida, one of Shaw's most popular of romantic comedies, sweeps us through one tumultuous day. An impassioned young poet, Marchbanks, has become a fixture in the home of the foreword thinking Reverend James Morell and his brilliant wife, Candida. By the end of that day, the poet has forced a life-changing decision from Candida that will forever alter the future of all concerned. Along the way, Shaw exhibits his dazzling insights and wicked wit.
Now in its eighth year, Gingold Theatrical Group's Project Shaw made history in December 2009 as the first company ever to present performances of every one of Shaw's 65 plays (including full-length works, one-acts and sketches). GTG presents an annual festival, SHAW NEW YORK, which includes a fully-mounted Shaw play.Its 2013 festival presented Shaw's You Never Can Tell as a co-production with The Pearl Theatre Company, which ran September 17 - October 13, 2013, and was filmed for the Theatre on Film and Tape Collection for the NYPL Performing Arts Library at Lincoln Center.
